to come back with another big bond. what we would like to try to do is get the street repaving back to the general fund. build up the general fund so that it can cover the streets. it may at the 100%, so we are looking at taking back the vehicle license fee that the state now has. they use it for everything but our streets. we need to take that local decision and get our vehicle license fee back to our streets. the combination of those two will colon -- continue to allow us to have a good pot of money to continue maintaining the streets at a high level. but these three years will only keep us at the current level. it will not get us into a better place because of all of the backlog of streets in disrepair. i want to make sure that we have done enough so that it does not increase fivefold, if we did not do anything. that is the danger. i am spending my saturday -- weekends -- talking to neighborhood groups about pension reform, the street repaving bond. those are two important things we are doing. we will also be introducing a half cent sales tax to take the place of the state's inab

"we all got a check minus." and so what happened was-- the focus group got a check minus. we had sort of been in hollywood for three years doing pilot, doing things. and so we kind of said, "here's another one that's just not going to work." and so we had an opportunity to go make a movie, this movie, orgazmo, that we got the money for. so we're like, "we're going to make this movie." and they're like, "you can't do that." and then finally a couple months later, they said, "you know what? maybe we will try. write another script, and we'll see." and we ended up writing the kathie lee episode, which became another episode. we wrote that, and then-- you know, but it was all-- again, if it had been based purely on focus groups and that kind of thing, it would have never been on the air. there are people wh
